Yard waste collection begins April 10: You may begin placing yard waste, prepared to collection guidelines, out each week on your garbage day beginning the week of April 10, 2017. If you have yard waste that you’d like to get rid of before collection begins, call Solid Waste & Recycling at 612-673-2917 or visit Hennepin County’s Yard and Tree Waste Disposal webpage.
Take a tour of the recycling facility: You can now sign up to attend a tour of the recycling facility where the City’s one-sort recyclables are sorted back into paper, plastic, glass and metal. Tours are offered monthly, however, space is limited and some restrictions apply. Click here for more information, tour dates, times, and how to sign up. If you can’t attend a tour in person but still want to see how the recycling system works, watch Eureka Recycling’s Story of a Cereal Box video.
